Martin is an American sitcom that aired for five seasons on Fox from August 27,to May 1, Reflecting the rising popularity of the Fox network throughout the s, Martin was one of the network's highest-rated shows during the sitcom's run.
A common theme of the series is Martin's selfish and free-spirited nature. Episodes often center on Martin's inappropriate behaviors and incessant smart mouth towards his friends, neighbors, and whoever else finds themselves in his presence. When all is said and done, however, Martin loves his family and friends—it just takes dire situations for him to show it. As the series progressed, plotlines saw Martin eventually move on to become the host of the talk show Word on the Streetwhich aired on the small Detroit public-access television station Channel He retained this position until the series' final episode, in which he and Gina prepared to move to Los Angelesfrom where his show would be syndicated nationally.
The move coincided fortuitously with Gina's promotion by her boss Mr.
Whitaker to head up his company's new Los Angeles headquarters, after having shut down the Detroit office.

InTisha Campbell filed a lawsuit against her co-star Martin Lawrence and the show's producers for sexual harassment and verbal and physical assaultsand she did not appear in most of the season five episodes.
The in most of the episodes Campbell did not appear in was that Gina was "out on business", though in the two-part episode "Going Overboard" it was stated that Gina had arrived too late to board the boat for the trip alongside everyone else.
In the episode, Martin and Gina kept entering and exiting the sets at different times and the storyline was adjusted so that the characters were both part of it but never crossed paths. One of the trademark running gags of Martinespecially early in its run, was Lawrence playing multiple characters, utilizing various costumes and prosthetic appliances.
This was often done as a plot device or comic relief. Season four was the last season to feature Lawrence as multiple characters on a regular basis. This technique was rarely used in Season 5, which was the final season of the series.
The only characters that appeared in Season 5 were Sheneneh, Roscoe and Elroy. Mama Payne does not appear but her voice is heard in the holiday episode "Scrooge". Most of the other characters were last seen in Season 4 and the episodes they last appeared in seemingly wrote them out of the series.
